Hi,  Could you please tell me how you define reverse isolation on your
datasheet for this part?  Is it the equivalent of a small signal S12
measurement or is it the difference between forward gain and reverse gain i.e
S21-S12?  I just need to check as our customer has raised a query about this
and ON/OFF isolation is an important parameter for this product.  btw, I
believe it is equivalent to S12.


The reverse isolation is S12 simply plotted in dB versus frequency. Please find
the complete S-parameter plots for the same.

This is comparable to what we have in the Datasheet.
